Summer is officially here courtesy of Starbucks, who have dreamed up a major State Fair concoction in one yummy blended beverage.
As part of its summer menu, Starbucks is rolling out a Strawberry Funnel Cake Frappuccino – and as the name suggests it’s full of summer fun.

“We wanted to capture the joy of this time of year, and we thought about those simple pleasures that really encapsulate summer,” Sara Bennett, senior product developer for Starbucks R&D team, said in a press release. “That led us to state fairs and funnel cake — just wanting to channel that sense of carefree fun.”
The delicious-sounding beverage, which hit Starbucks locations on May 11, features “layers of strawberry puree and whipped cream swirled with a funnel cake-flavored Frappuccino, topped with crunchy powdered sugar funnel cake pieces.”
As with all Starbucks drinks, the Strawberry Funnel Cake Frappuccino can be customized with non-dairy milk.
The funnel cake delight will be available for a limited time while supplies last.
